Where Your Donations Go
We assist Wildlife Officers and their dependants in a number of important ways. Your generous donations play a vital role in supporting our mission and creating positive change in the warden community in California. We understand that everyone has different preferences and capacities when it comes to giving, which is why we provide diverse options for you to contribute.
Protecting the diverse wildlife of our great state can be both challenging and costly. We provide financial assistance in the form of grants, helping to bolster, prepare, and care for the brave service people who risk everything for our state’s natural resources.
Making sure our officers are educated in a variety of ways is paramount, which is why we’re committed to making higher education affordable. We help Wildlife Officers and their families with college finances and the costs of various educational programs in order to arm them with all manner of knowledge and training.
Training and Safety Support
We’re here to make sure CA Wildlife Officers get what they need to serve our state well. Foundation funds may assist Wildlife Officers in securing resources that are otherwise unavailable in their annual state budget, giving them the tools they need for continued analysis and dynamic research.
Beyond providing financial assistance and educational resources we also exist to further public knowledge about the vital services Wildlife Officers perform. Part of our mission is to teach the citizens of our state about what these brave Officers do, and how all of us can help make sure that they’re taken care of.

Donating stocks or other securities to CalWOFn is a powerful way to make a meaningful contribution while potentially enjoying significant tax benefits. By donating appreciated securities, you can support our mission and potentially avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated value of the stocks.
When you donate stocks, you transfer ownership to our organization, allowing us to sell the securities and use the proceeds to further our programs and initiatives. This method of giving provides you with a unique opportunity to maximize the impact of your donation while potentially minimizing your tax liability.
Gifts of securities can be easily donated to the CalWOF by the paperless direct transfer method between your stockbroker and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC. If you need to transfer paper securities, please contact [email protected].
